The “Deathers”: Fox Hosts Wonder If Bin Laden Killing Is A Hoax

Yes, now there are the “deathers,” those who doubt the death of Osama Bin Laden. Of course, two of the most prominent are Fox commentators, who must be driven wild by Obama’s nine-point jump in approval ratings. In addition, Bin Laden's death contradicts the right-wing theme that Democrats are "soft on terror." Fox’s Andrew Napolitano warns against “too much joy and unity.” He wonders about “no photos” of a dead Bin Laden, even though the administration is debating whether photos may inflame Bin Laden’s followers. He also wonders about “no testimony from eye witnesses,” even though the storming of the compound was a secret operation, not a media circus. Napolitano suggests that the government may be “pulling a fast one to save Obama’s lousy presidency.” He questions whether Bin Laden should have been killed without also considering the dangerous circumstances of the operation. Absurdly, Napolitano suggests that Obama may now go on a killing spree:

Napolitano is joined in his cynicism by Glenn Beck, who asks, “Are poll numbers involved, or are we seeing a show? Is it possible that Osama Bin Laden has been ghosted out of his compound?” Watch:

Prior to the operation against Bin Laden, of course, the conservative media repeatedly attacked Obama’s commitment to fighting terror.
